X-Team

2017 was a phenomenal year for X-Team. We personally want to thank every X-Teamer for helping us continue to create the most motivated, inspiring and innovative community where developers can learn, grow and work from anywhere. We were there for each other. We motivated each other. We inspired one another. We explored together. We gave together. And we laughed together (if only you'd seen our X-Mas Party). And really, the best is yet to come as w

Getting a job as a remote developer is dependent on many factors, but by far one of the most important is how you present yourself on video. You might be thinking, “What does that have to do with how good my code is?” It is a valid question, and I agree — it should not matter that much. If you code best in your running t-shirt from 1991, or you are most productive in a basement with terrible lighting, that really should not matter as long as you

We are a colorful bunch here at X-Team, and, this time, we are happy to talk to Maciej Chmurski, our resident expert on all things car drifting and drone racing. Who has not dreamed about driving like they do in movies? Well, Maciej can actually do that, though he only does it legally and in a controlled environment for everyone's safety, of course. Still, consider anything and everything you learn about drifting and drones today potentially dan

Have you heard of the "new kid" in Back-End town? Well, he has been around for a while now, coming up on 8 years, but many people paid him no attention, as they were busy with their own PHP, Python, Java, etc. But now, he is shining brighter than ever. He blossomed into a jack-of-all-trades, and a definite master of more-than-just-one; and his name is Node.js. About Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript runtime environmen

You say to-may-to, we say to-mah-to. But recently, X-Teamers had the opportunity to pick the brain of a guy, who dedicated quite some time these last few years to study of productivity... and he does not say either of those. He says, pomodoro! We are talking, of course, about Karol Sojko. A developer, Unleasher, and a master of productivity, who also recently held a talk at the 4Developers 2017 conference, titled Unleashing Your Super-dev-powers

Who does not like to meet old friends, make new friends and listen to some good talks for good measure? These three elements are at the core of the conference experience — increasing one's skill, mingling with like-minded people, and Node.js conferences tick all the boxes. There are international events happening on all continents, with thousands upon thousands of participants. And since a major front-end conference — React Europe — has just ende

X-Team recently held a round table discussion on the future of front-end web technologies, and one specific topic really stood out. With React.js being one of the current juggernauts of front-end development, can an up-and-coming technology like Elm hope to dethrone it? And what does WebAssembly have to do with all of this? While readers are likely familiar with React at least on the surface, let us kick this off by giving you a short overview o
